The next In Search of ‘Good’ Energy Policy CRASSH seminar of Lent term takes place on Tuesday 15 January in SG1, Alison Richard building, Sidgwick Site. There will be a sandwich lunch from 12pm with the seminar starting at 12.30pm. The talk is given by Dr Ruchi Choudhary (Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge), on Energy Efficient Cities, with a response by Prof Markus Gehring (Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge). 


The speaker will present for around 30 minutes, followed by the respondent and then a Q&A session with the audience members. A sandwich lunch is provided from 12-12.30pm before the seminar begins, which is open to all and no registration is required. 


The “In Search of ‘Good’ Energy Policy” seminar series is part of the Research Networks and is supported and hosted at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH). What constitutes a ‘good’ policy is conditioned not only by technology and financial factors but also by social norms and values, institutions, geopolitics, public trust and history.


The seminar series explores energy policy themes from different disciplinary perspectives - economics, history, philosophy, theology, politics, law, anthropology, psychology, engineering - with the aim of identifying principles and processes for ‘good’ energy policy making.
